Inflammatory pseudotumors (IPTs) are rare, nonepithelial tumors of the urinary bladder that are benign. They are very difficult to distinguish from sarcomas or carcinomas of the urinary bladder in children. Conservative surgical management by either transurethral resection or partial cystectomy is the treatment of choice. We report here a rare case of juvenile urinary bladder IPT that we managed by right partial cystectomy with right ureteric reimplantation because of involvement of the right ureteric orifice. On account of histological similarity of IPT to malignant urinary bladder tumors, it is mandatory to require definite diagnosis and long-term close follow up.
